Ahhh.... that's better..
I guess I should clarify: it's not lists per se that I find "silly" (a poor
choice of words), just their use for this particular problem...
Anyway, I took a look at KirbyBase, and decided to use that... it does almost
exactly what I was trying to write myself, and does it reasonably quickly
Thanks for all your help.
